The photo fits the title- such an inviting view! Makes me want to just wander and well, dream, absorbed in the beautiful colors. The fence takes you along for a lovely walk into the field and beyond. Very appealing work-could see it large on a whole wall!

Lovely shot! My preference would be to stop down a bunch or focus stack or maybe crop in from the bottom left to eliminate the most OOF parts of the frame. Regardless, I still love it - it has a dreamy quality to it.

This brings back happy memories of my years living in Scotland, it grows a lot there, although over this side of the pond we call it Rose Bay Willow Herb.  A lovely view of the drifts of flowers, John.  :)

Rose Bay Willow Herb...that sounds a lot more pleasant than Fireweed...lol
Apparently one can even make jelly from the flowers and tea from the leaves.
THX for the comment.

Agreed...not too happy with the oof areas myself.
It was a grab shot with only a few minutes of fleeting light as the sun dipped behind the clouds shortly after the photo :(
